Mary was diagnosed with multiple myeloma 12 years ago after dealing with persistent fatigue, bone pain, and nausea. She visited her primary care physician who ran bloodwork and referred her to an oncologist for further testing. Mary was completely unaware of multiple myeloma until she was diagnosed and turned to Google for information early on in her journey.
Mary lives in a major metropolitan area with her spouse and continues to work full time as a market researcher. She and her spouse do not have children and are both helping elderly parents who are also living with medical issues. Mary is a researcher by nature and enjoys having in-depth information before making any decision—no matter how small.
